5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent summary of Nationalism, 11 Jun. 2006

This review is from: Nationalism (Oxford Readers) (Paperback)
This book is a reader on nationalism that does an excellent summary - perhaps the best summary around - of all the key developments on thought about nationalism. This is a field that has rapidly expanded over the last few decades and thus profits greatly from this work of synthesis and comparative analysis. One of the great things about the book is its inclusion of extracts from the writings of luminaries in the field, from Joseph Stalin and Max Weber to more recent commentators like Eric Hosbawm and Benedict Anderson.

The book is divided into a number of sections, each with an introduction and a selection of extracts from a number of writers.

[...]

Students will find this extremely useful as a general survey of the subject. General readers will also be interested the issues flagged up, which bear immense relevance to contemporary politics, society and culture.

Without doubt, a five-star contribution to the field.

This review is from: Nationalism (Oxford Readers) (Paperback)
I would recommend this as the first place to go for anyone studying the complex subject of nationalism and national identity. The wide-ranging extracts are concise and well-chosen, and the introductory comments to each section are very helpful.
